LAUREN FRANK

Hi, I’m Lauren. I am a graphic designer based in NYC and a recent graduate from University of California, Los Angeles where I studied Art with a minor in Art History. I have previously worked as an intern for The Jewish Museum in New York, VICE Media, and NBCUniversal, and now I’m working as a Design Assistant at Artisan Council while also working on freelance projects.

My main interests within design include branding, typography, archives, and books, as well as the intersections between art and design.

Big fan of to-do lists, lists in general, Hieronymus Bosch, the relationship between witchcraft and feminism, weird art, and really chubby typefaces.

SOUVENIRS IN SPACE


Souvenirs in Space was created as part of a capstone project completed for a B.A. in Art from UCLA. This saddle-stitch booklet brings together most of the artwork I created in college, accompanied by text on my inspirations, ideas, and themes behind each series, most of which focus heavily on place, identity, and nostalgia, as named on the booklet’s cover.


BOOK DESIGN



POPSHIFT SUMMIT


Designed for a virtual event at the peak of COVID-19 in 2020 to provide participants with a tangible and memorable element of the event, during a very digital-heavy time. This 8-page booklet was a concept created for PopShift Summit, an event bringing television writers and showrunners together to create a more inclusive and intersectional future for the entertainment industry. The use of typography reminiscent of Old Hollywood and bold shapes and color all represent a new wave of change within a historically exclusive industry.

IDENTITY DESIGN



OUT WEST COOKBOOK


This book was designed with the user in mind most of all, focusing on being straightforward and understandable, while also evoking the excitement of cooking. The use of bright photography and color reflects the colorful landscape and cuisine of the West Coast. Each chapter is assigned its own color, so the reader may easily find a chapter by looking at the fore-edge of the book. Photography by Nikole Herriot and Michael Graydon.
